Preview: Doctor Who Finds “Dinosaurs on a Spaceship”

OK, the season-opener, “Asylum of the Daleks,” set the blockbuster bar incredibly high, so there is no way that the second episode could possibly live up to AOTD’s level of action, characterization and historical resonance. What I am looking for from “Dinosaurs on a Spaceship” is a more light-hearted, fun adventure – something that is entertaining without being as heavy as episode one.

Here we have the trailer for the new episode…

It looks like could be just what we need following the Doctor’s visit to the asylum: a clever palette-cleanser that is still a rousing adventure but, more than anything, fun. How can I tell? By the twinkle of delight in the Doctor’s eyes as he marvels, “Dinosaurs – on a spaceship!”
